Transcript for Michelle Pfeiffer to play Betty Ford in new TV series, 'The First Lady'
It's time for "Pop news." Janai, I have one question for you. I'm a little nervous to ask this. I'm nervous too. What is it, Dan? What's popping? Oh, lord. They must keep giving you that to toss to me because they know it will be shenanigans. It is time for "Pop news." First up this morning, Dr. Jill Biden may be our country's newest first lady but Michelle Pfeiffer is heading to the small screen to play another influential president's wife, Betty Ford, the wife of president Gerald Ford, in showtime's series "The first lady." Pfeifer saying, quote, it's an honor to be a part of telling Betty's story. She now joins Viola Davis who is on board to play Michelle Obama in the new anthology which will focus on the personal and political lives of Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. The show re-examining the families who have lived in the white house through the eyes of the first ladies. No premiere date has been set, but it's sure to be a first rate series and this is my opportunity to be on record saying Michelle Obama, everyone behind her look, we are not worthy. Our jaws were on the floor when she came out. Like, lord have mercy. Okay. In music news Billie eilish debuting her first ever song in Spanish teaming up with rosalia for their new hit, "Lo vas a olvidar," which translates to you're going to forget. Take a look. Eilish writing on Instagram, quote, I love this song so much, now here it is for you to enjoy and her fans are loving it making "Lo vas a olvidar" the top trending video on YouTube within 24 hours of its release. The new track set to appear in a special episode of "Euphoria." We'll have more on that ahead in "Binge this." And I was watching an interview, Billie eilish said that rosalia had to tell her how to say everything because she doesn't really know Spanish like that, but she nailed it. So nicely done. Finally the meme that just keeps on giving. Senator Bernie Sanders' inauguration outfit along with his stance in the bleachers. I know you've seen it everywhere now. During president Biden's inauguration on Wednesday made the internet explode this week. Now that meme is getting official merchandise. Topps collectible giving him his own baseball card and the national bobblehead hall of fame turning the mask-upped senator into his own figure right there. Sanders is taking advantage of the viral moment selling a chairman Sanders sweatshirt on his website with 100% of the proceeds going to meals on wheels in Vermont, all for a good cause. I love it. I spent a lot of time on Instagram just going through those memes. They were so good. They were getting better and better. Also, it was cold in his it was actually really cold on inauguration day. We want graphics to take a shot and get senator Sanders in it. Love the mittens too. Thank you so much, janai.
